The table isn't ideal (it's an old computer desk) but it'll do for now and it has useful storage space for my overlocker, etc underneath.

And here is the room all lovely and neat and organised.
Don't you think it looks better?
I've organised my yarn stash and it's all neatly stored either on the shelves or in bins (which are not pictured). It's a tiny room (approximately 8ft x 8ft) but everything has it's own place and I'm not ashamed to go in there anymore!

Here is the "before" picture. The large Michael's bag at the front of the picture contains most of the haul that I brought back from our road trip in the US back in November. I actually only bought about 3 balls of Lion's Brand yarn from Michael's and they gave me this ginormous bag as they had run out of smaller ones. Still.... it came in very handy as I shoved all the lovely yarny stuff I bought in New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada into it and I managed to squish the air out of it by parking my big old backside on it which kind of vacuum packed it for its journey back to the UK. It squashed down so much that I actually carried it in my hand luggage on the way home. The lady on the x-ray machine at Las Vegas airport looked at me like I was some kind of freak as I explained to her that the large mass she could see on her screen was yarn! I'm actually still upset 4 months later because I reckon I could have fitted a whole lot more yarn into that bag had I known that I could vacuum pack stuff WITHOUT a vacuum cleaner!!
Anyhow, back to the room. It needed a jolly good sorting out and was starting to get on my nerves quite badly as I was beginning to have a hard time finding stuff. So I rolled up my sleeves and got stuck into making it a bit nicer.
